Chapel on Echo Bay presents Christmas Magic with Tingstad & Rumbel

Each and every season for 29 years, Grammy Award-winning artists, Eric Tingstad and Nancy Rumbel have been home for the holidays creating a long-standing tradition with Northwest families. Their holiday presence illuminates the enduring spirit of the season with a gift of song.

This year their exclusive South Sound appearance will be Thursday, Dec. 8, 6-9 p.m. at The Chapel on Echo Bay on Fox Island. Tickets are $35 for Chapel Preservation Society members and $40 for non-members. Tickets are on sale at or by calling the office at (253) 549-7039.

The perfect blend of Americana finger-style guitar, double reeds, and the ocarina emitting the nostalgic sound of penny whistles lends magic to the season that fills the world with hope through the redeeming power of music. Festive and reverent, solemn and lively, the repertoire Eric and Nancy bring to audiences year after year are perennial favorites that have been passed down through the ages.

The famous duo first collaborated in 1985 recording their debut CD, “The Gift”, which quickly became a holiday classic. Their holiday discography includes, “Comfort and Joy,” “Star of Wonder” and “Peace on Earth.”

The concert will be preceded by an elegant wine reception at 6:00 p.m. catered by Gallucci’s of Tacoma.
